What could be sweeter than a newborn little one slumbering on a guitar? Not much, I’m sure! These adorable letterpress birth announcements by Heather from Maida Vale for her son, Henry, are a wonderful combination of photography, letterpress, and musical inspiration.
Before Henry’s birth, my husband, Shawn, and I developed the concept behind his announcement. Shawn is a musician, so using this as the inspiration, I designed a “ticket” wrap to announce Henry’s debut. After Henry was born, Seattle photographer, Carolyn Kipper, orchestrated the photo of him perched on Shawn’s guitar. I then printed the wraps on my press and outsourced double-sided photo cards. Finally, we tied the whole bundle together with a guitar pick and baker’s twine.
